Living Pot-Grown Christmas Tree Norway Spruce 1-1.2M

Living Pot-Grown Christmas Tree Norway Spruce 1-1.2M was £19.99 now £12.99
It’s impossible to beat that stunning fresh pine fragrance that a real Christmas Tree brings to the home. Not for us the artificial trees in their odd shades and colours. But fresh cut trees are very expensive for just a few weeks use, before we haul them off to the shredder – and they can make a mess too. That’s where our fabulous Living pot-Grown Christmas trees are a real winner. Yes, you get that lovely pine room fragrance, but it will not drop the needles – because it’s still alive! And at about the same cost as a cut tree, you can keep it from year to year too, and save a lot of money over 5 or even 10 years. The Norway Spruce is the classic Christmas Tree. British-Grown on the same farms as cut trees, they have been nurtured and trimmed in just the same way. But, because they are grown in their pots – they can easily be kept for many, many years to come. Just a little water in the rootball when used indoors each year, and once the decorations come down, pop it back outside and keep it growing. In itself, it is a beautiful evergreen garden tree, lovely all year round. It needs no special feeding or pruning – just ensure it does not dry out in Summer. Very slow growing, you can use it for many Christmasses to come. Living Christmas Trees – combing fresh pine fragrance, little needledrop and saving you money over buying a tree every year.
